Does your shadow dance a lively jig
Or flicker on your wall?
Does it gently come and quietly go
And change from large to small?
Does it lightly dance upon the sand
Or tremble under trees?
Perhaps it simply follows you
And waltzes on the breeze.
When dark clouds cross the sunny sky
And hide the shining sun,
Your shadow likes to hide as well
For hiding is such fun.
Then when the rain begins to fall,
Your shadow starts to fear
The sun will never shine again
And so it disappears.
It hasn’t really gone for good;
There’s no cause for concern.
If you turn the lights on in your home
Your shadow will return.
It’s very firmly tied to you
For you’re its special friend,
And it’s promised to stay by your side
From birth until life’s end.
